    I've got the Authentic and the Clone, Authentic is a work of art. But then again everything I've gotten from MCV is exquisite.

    The Clone performs very well and for the cost of it the Noisy Cricket is a waste of money.

    I'll have to dig it out of my stash (the Authentic). But it's really simple, the machining on the Authentic is impeccable. The threading, finish, etc are are work of art.

    The Clone's I got are a 1:1 Clone except for the nut that goes into the switch. The Authentic it's Copper, the Clone it's Brass. The Machining on the Clone of course isn't nearly as good, it's not bad but certainly not the quality of the Authentic. The threads are scratchy, then finish is a bit rough. Comparison of performance, I'd say it's damn close to matching the Authentic. That's why I've packed my Authentic away and Vape on the Clone.

    Yep, you and me both. That Raptor G2 is sweet!

    I pre ordered a Darang V3 back in November and a Tahiti Mod back in December, FINALLY it shipped from the PI last week. So end of month I should get it, almost 6 months .............. insane but Gatub is a true artist so it should be worth the time waited.

    This is one of the reasons I buy clone mechanical mods- for the price, they perform really well, and I am not worried to use them.

    I can understand people buying high end authentics if they have the money and/or are a collector, but I buy my mechs to use. I do collect regulated mods though and think nothing of spending a fair amount of money on an authentic one. It isn't worth it to me for mechs as I don't see myself as a collector of them, I just enjoy using them from time to time.

    Clones are very hit and miss. It's just not the quality of machining but also materials used. I will buy a Clone of a high end device to get the general idea if I would like the Authentic. All keeping in mind that most all Clones are subpar.

    On rare occasions you will find a Clone that performs to the specifications of the Authentic. Example Anubis Clone, Sith Clone don't even come close to matching the Authentic in either build quality or performance. But then there is VCP Clone, very close.

    I would sort out the problem of it being hit or miss with firing- with a mech, if it doesn't fire it means something isn't right, don't keep trying to fire it until you find out why it isn't always firing.

    If it is just something like the contacts, a clean will sort it, but if it is something bad that is intermittent it could go wrong fairly fast.

    I never managed to get myself a Fuhatten, which is a shame as for the price I would of bought an authentic, I don't mind if they are good value (even though they are a clone lol). I may have to go for a clone of the clone.

    Not sure on the dialect of Tagalog, but I believe he is saying Please Text 09329001660 with your concern.

    Not word for word, but I believe that's the general gist. I believe that is the number for some of his staff (Athena and someone else).
